The carriages and buggies represent every walk of life from farmer to wealthy aristocrat. The collection is displayed in a carriage house style setting complete with guides and interpretive signs that give a glimpse into the horse drawn era. Unique period accessories and tools are also displayed throughout the museum. Robert Thomas III will conduct tours on a full time basis beginning June of 2010. Open Monday-Saturday,10-5. Closed on Sundays, except after Thanksgiving through the second week in January.  Hours would be 1-5.
